Grandparents Plus is the national charity (England and Wales) which champions the vital role of grandparents and the wider family in children’s lives – especially when they take on the caring role in difficult family circumstances. We do this because we want to make children’s lives better.
- Campaigning for change so that their contribution to children’s wellbeing and care is valued and understood
- Providing evidence, policy solutions and training so that they get the services and support they need to help children thrive
- Advising and supporting grandparents and wider family members to ensure they have access to a holistic service, offering them professional advice, information and casework support; and by ensuring that they can have a voice and help each other, especially when they are caring for children who are not living with their parents.
- Advising, informing and supporting professionals to develop good kinship care practice and advising employers about how they can respond to the needs of their ageing workforces.
